Barts Square shortlisted for AJ100 Building of the Year

16th June 2021

Barts Square, led by Sheppard Robson for Helical, has been shortlisted for the AJ100 Building of the Year.

Through a combination of new build and re-use of existing buildings, the mixed-use projectincludes 21,800m² of office space and incorporates two Grade A office buildings, nine residential buildings containing 236 units, and 2,800m² of retail and restaurants.

The nine-year project used a collaborative design approach, combining reuse of existing buildings with new architectural statements where appropriate. Historic plot widths and building scales have been retained, while new buildings slot in to create a permeable urban quarter, maintaining the scale and materiality of their neighbours.
